Our Story

Kamloops is far more than a city, it’s a state of mind. A place where you skip the crowds, stretch your legs and expand your horizons. Resting on the shores of two picturesque rivers, the landscapes invite a sense of improvised adventure.

Be energized by the  winding walkways and twisty single-track bike trails. Swing your clubs on award-winning golf courses. Cast a line on 1 of 100+ lakes around Kamloops. Walk our quaint tree-lined downtown streets to visit local shops or immerse in the vibrant arts, culture and rich history.

Taste samples of culinary enthusiasm at a variety of cafes and restaurants that appeal to the most discerning taste buds. Explore a burgeoning list of wine from 4 wineries or indulge in a pint at the 3 craft breweries. Don’t just escape, explore.
